When Borussia Dortmund face Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday, FC Barcelona loanee Paco Alcacer is likely to make his official debut for the BVB with a spot in the starting eleven also being a real possibility.
The 25-year-old played his first game for Dortmund last week as he featured in a 6-0 win against VfL Osnabrück.
Alcacer wasn't directly involved in any of the goals, but that doesn't concern Dortmund coach Lucien Favre who feels sure that the striker can help the BVB.
"He understands football. He moves forward, he moves back. We can combine with him. It works with him," Favre told Kicker.
Last season, Alcacer made 23 appearances for FC Barcelona, scoring seven goals.
